my grammar could hit the target from that distance

The revolution has begun. No longer will we put up with dodgy speeling, misplaced apostrophes' or improper; punctuation? P.S. pointing out bad grammar in postings is banned. To justify this I'm applying a form of grammatical 'absolute privilege', as the public interest in publishing mistakes far outweighs the cost to the public of making further mistakes. Call me a hypocrite if you will, but it works in Westminster.

Glass house, throwing stones

As our dear leader Robbie has said previously, finding mistakes in the Guardian is like finding a rosary on the Pope, but this one nearly burst my irony gland.

From a piece in the Media pullout entitled In praise of the subeditor:

"Newspapers have often found it difficulty to recruit subeditors over the last few years"

(NB It was corrected on the website.)

Please do not Write such stupid notes. Thanks.

I've been meaning to post this for ages - Andy left his car parked in the little car park behind our flat. When he returned, he found the following note tucked into his windscreen wipers, now pinned to our fridge:

"Which flat do You LIVE IN. NONE.!!

Please do not Park your car here. Thanks"

Not only rude and inaccurate, but only degenerates and teenage girls use double exclamation marks.
